I was at a family reunion recently and stayed at De Oude Meul for 3 nights. The accommodation was clean, cozy and comfortable situated in beautiful surroundings.The staff were friendly and very helpful. The breakfasts were excellent. As lunch and dinner were provided to our very large group, I did not get to try the a la carte restaurant, but... More

We stopped here for lunch after visiting the Cango Caves. We were sat on the lovely verandah and had a very good and friendly waiter called Proud. The food was very pleasant - I had a nice traditional bobotie and the burgers were tasty. It made for a perfect break between sightseeing.

We stayed here for a couple of nights while visiting Buffelsdrift and Cango Caves. It's very well located for the attractions along the Cango Valley and for getting into Oudtshoorn. We booked a double self catering unit which was OK but a bit basic and would certainly benefit from renovation. The restaurant on site is very good with friendly staff... More

We only stayed one night, taking a double self catering unit. Two x double bedrooms, each en-suite, linked across the front with a well equipped kitchen and lounge area, with sliding doors to a patio facing an open grass area. All very clean and smart, the grounds are well kept and the swimming pool looked clean and inviting, had we... More

This well advertised touristy place has clearly had its best times and looks quite worn down. It is conveniently located between the town and the Cango caves but not worth a trip out of town. The food is country stylish but prepared with little attention to details.

We spent 3 nights at Oude Meul. It was conveniently located, and all the basics well catered for. Our fridge was faulty, but replaced within a few hours of reporting. We had a wonderful kudu steak at their restaurant, and their daily breakfasts were quite delicious with friendly staff. We enjoyed escaping the summer heat at their (p)ool every afternoon.... More

We booked in for only one night and it was far too short. We stayed in two self catering rooms which were both ensuite and interlinked with a very well equipped kitchen unit. The air con was a MUST as was the very clean pool. My son really enjoyed the play area and the ponies as well as the rabbit... More

If you are looking for reasonably priced accomodation with stunning surroundings, this is the place to go. The "self-contained" units are spaceous and with great views of the mountains. The swimming pool was just perfect for the very hot weather. Well placed just outside the town with easy access to the Cango Caves and Buffels Drift Game Reserve (Elephant experiences).... More
